The Medical Library Book Tree

Book treeIt's the holiday season and that usually means our staff is busy decorating the library and building our beloved book tree. Stationed in the Historical Library reading room, the book tree comprises anywhere from 450 to over 600 volumes of the National Union Catalogue (last year's tree was particularly rotund). A team of energetic staff volunteers to transport, organize, and arrange the heavy volumes during the day-long process, jumping in and out as schedules (and strength!) permit. It's the perfect way to burn off those extra Thanskgiving calories!

While we'll miss building a tree this year, we hope you'll enjoy these time-lapse videos of previous book tree builds.
